  • Description

    Description

    We live 2kms from central Motueka township. We are a busy working couple with two adult sons one living close by with his wife and our beautiful grandchildren who visit regularly and our older son now lives in Perth with his wife and baby son.

    The property consists of muddled cottage gardens, a home vege patch and a large vegetable garden out the back, we have a 1/4 acre mixture of fruit trees which will expand to a full acre by the end of 2013.
    Husband loves the great outdoors, is a hunter gatherer who always makes sure the freezer is stocked with wild game and we have at least two years of firewood ahead of us every year.

    What else ...

    Our unique difference is that we can teach you about local Maori history, visit our marae, experience the culture, traditions and food in our (rohe) area.

    You would be treated with respect, kindness and honesty but this would need to be reciprocal. We enjoy hosting but only for a maximum of two weeks.

    We would prefer non fussy eaters unless you are happy to prepare all your own food. Part of our normal diet consists of meat and dairy products which we all enjoy along with seafood.
